Patio of the Day

Play Ball: The Tavern Downtown

Catering to the pre- and post-Rockies game crowd, the Tavern Downtown has a massive rooftop where the drinks are strong and the atmosphere is laid-back. From this vantage point, you can see any fights that might break out on Market Street, as well as any action over by Coors Field. But there's always plenty of action on the Tavern's up-top deck, too, and Playboy ranked this rooftop bar one of the top ten in the country.

For sports fans, there are a few TVs behind the bar, so you can sit outside and still watch the game. The sun can be brutal up here during the day, but this patio is perfect if you’re looking to get a little color – and you can always slip inside to the game room. Even if the Rockies weren't in town this week, a visit to the Tavern Downtown would be a guaranteed hit.
